Are you overweight?
Have you seen an Orthopedist so far?
Swelling,redness on leg?
Lower back pain?
Any other medical history?
Are you taking any medications?
I am about 20 lbs overweight. I have not seen an Orthopedist.
No swelling or redness. Yes I have lower back pain, but it is mild compared to my hips and legs. I walked point for 14 months in Vietnam, so I was not only carrying 100lbs on my back, I was also cutting and clearing a path for the rest of the team. I was wounded three times, but none serious enough to be sent home. I currently take lorazepam, Zanax , and Tylinol 3 with codine.
Hello,Thanks for providing more information.
Well as you describe in my opinion,you need to be seen by an Orthopedist for a clinical examination and undergo MRI of Lumbosacral spine & pelvis to rule out Herniated disc,Nerve compression,Arthritis, which result in sharp pain in hip and leg.
You shouldn't ignore it as such as your symptoms'll gradually get worse over the time.
You may require further prescribed medications like Strong opoid,Gabapentin.
Physical therapy can be effective in your case.
You may require a proper treatment rather than wait & watch approach.
